Passoni Top Force - Shimano Dura Ace mechanical

Carl is a long time cyclist and IT meister and he loves his numbers and statistics, he can recall his best times on many an Alpine climb and Yorkshire Col at the drop of a hat. You have to get everything right for Carl, but surprisingly no powermeter.

The challenge with this build was to design a bike that not only fitted well but would also need to incorporate a new riding position, this can be risky as feeling not quite right on a brand new bike can be a bit of a drama after a five figure investment. We found the right place for Carl and he loves his Passoni, even the narrower handlebars, we're not so sure about that carbon saddle though!

What our clients say

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."


    New Cyclist

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."


    Self-confessed MAMIL

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

    Time-Triallist (70+)

  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."
